Commercial Our Specialists Can Clean Up Your Fire Damaged Property In Lower Providence Township Our emergency response crews are available 24/7 to mitigate commercial fire damage to your property.

Cleaning Up Commercial Fire Damage In Lower Providence Township

We know how devastating fire damage can be to a residential property and it can be even more so when a service-industry business such as a restaurant or physician's practice is affected. The longer the premises cannot open to serve customers or patients, the more livelihoods that are affected.
 
When SERVPRO receives a call for commercial fire damage clean up in Lower Providence Township, we start the restoration process during the first phone call; the technician gathers information regarding the type of fire damage and commercial property affected, so our service vans arrive stocked with the necessary equipment to get started immediately upon arrival.
 
SERVPRO technicians are IICRC-certified in fire and water damage restoration and make suggestions regarding the removal or restorability of both building materials and property contents affected by smoke and soot damage. Charred materials such as drywall, are removed with the permission of the property owner as they can retain unpleasant smoke odors.
 
If the fire was localized in a specific area, our technicians put up barriers to stop the spread of soot and speed up the drying process from any excess moisture left from extinguishing the fire. The cleaning process is meticulous, and the methods our technicians use depends on the type of residue left behind by the items in the fire. Synthetics and rubbers tend to leave heavy residues while wood and organic materials leave much lighter films on surfaces. There can be different types of smoke residues in the same room that require the use of wet or dry sponges and solutions for complete cleaning.
 
No one wants to come into a business that smells like smoke, even a bit. SERVPRO technicians have odor control equipment that can neutralize foul odors such as thermal fogging. It works in the same manner as smoke, but a heated solvent solution is delivered as a fog to penetrate anywhere the smoke went and eliminating odors.
 
SERVPRO of Norristown knows that every minute your business cannot be open is money lost. Our emergency response crews are available 24/7 to mitigate commercial fire damage to your property. Call us at (610) 272-8520, and our team can make it “Like it never even happened.”

Water Damage Remediation in Your Norristown Business Works Only Under These Conditions

Commercial Water Damage Remediation in Your Norristown Business Works Only Under These Conditions If your business is suffering from excess water, you require effective water removal services. Contact our SERVPRO team for a quick reply.

Commercial Water Removal Quickly Makes Floors Safe Again in Your Norristown Factory

When machines in your Norristown factory break down and malfunction, you call the repairman licensed for that piece of equipment. When a water line slips loose from its fitting and floods your floor with water, you need someone who can fix the problem.

Working conditions that include a factory floor covered in water can put your employees at risk, making it crucial that Norristown commercial water removal and restoration experts arrive quickly. SERVPRO's specialists come prepared with both the needed equipment and tools but also IICRC-based training. Restoring safe working conditions is crucial for your factory in preventing workplace accidents and keeping production quotas in focus. Additionally, our teams help you avoid any unnecessary loss of both inventory and raw materials by helping your employees move these items to safer locations.

Extracting lost water requires one of our truck-mounted pumps when the amount is considerable. For smaller spills and post-pump work, we use hand-held units. These also remove large amounts of water along baseboards where water tension holds water, and also in smaller locations where our larger-sized pumps would not fit.

Mopping up the last traces of moisture can still leave floors damper than what we would like. Trapped water that found its way under machines too heavy or bulky to easily move, inside walls, under counters, and other spaces require different methods. We can drain some areas, like walls and then air them out with an Injectidry system. Other areas must air dry, so we speed the process up with air movers and desiccant machines.

Drying the air of moisture that comes originates from lost water protects working parts in machinery as well as more simple aspects of your plant. Hinges, windows, and any other locations that contain metal can more readily corrode and rust, making them difficult to function properly. We can help keep this minor problem from becoming a constant headache for everyone who works at your business.

SERVPRO of Norristown's goal is to get your factory in Audubon, Evansburg, or Norriton dry again to help prevent additional damage and slip and fall accidents. Call us at (610) 272-8520, so we can make everything “Like it never even happened.”

Commercial Some Ways to Avoid Increasing Costs During the Water Damage Remediation Process in Your Norristown Business When a pipe bursts, usually a great deal of water winds up in places that need to be dry. Should your business face water damage, contact SERVPRO.

Commercial Water Damage Restoration for Your Norristown Bakery

A pipe bursting or a water leak can lead to costly damage in your Norristown bakery. Once you discover you need a plumbing repair, drain repair, or water line repair, time is of the essence. That is why you need to help of a professional water mitigation service.
 
Commercial water damage in Norristown of any kind in your business is something you don’t want to waste time figuring out what to do. Your daily operations may be interrupted, and that can mean lost business. Our experts at SERVPRO understand this, so we do not hesitate to get to you once you call us for help.
 
Once we repair the issue and remove any standing water, SERVPRO staff use air movers to enhance evaporation at the surface level and lower the drying time to prevent further damage. The air touching a material that is saturated, such as carpet, has high humidity. Air movers introduce airflow at the surface level and replace the air which is highly saturated with drier air to speed up evaporation.
 
We position enough air movers to create airflow over all the wet surfaces. When the lower portion of several walls is wet, including wet drywall behind baseboards, enough air movers are put into the position to make a vortex of circular airflow around the walls. The vortex is maintained by the air movers positioned close to each wall to the point of almost touch at an angle, depending on whether centrifugal air movers or axial fans are used.
 
The air movers are placed pointing int eh same direction, usually clockwise, with one being put in place for every ten to sixteen linear feet along the walls. These machines can operate in several different positions, which offers us flexibility in how we direct the airflow.
 
To direct airflow horizontally, we operate the air move flat on the floor. For drying walls, we put the air movers around the perimeter at a forty-five-degree angle, inlet facing the wall, to make a circular and turbulent airflow.
 
SERVPRO of Norristown has all the right tools to help you restore your business in Audubon, Trooper, or Wetherills Corner after a water damage emergency. Call us any time of day or night by dialing (610) 272-8520, so we can assist you in getting your building looking like nothing ever happened.

Commercial How Restoration Companies Remove Water From Your Lower Providence Township Business Water on flooring can cause secondary damage. SERVPRO can quickly and effectively remove the water.

Communication in Commercial Water Removal for Lower Providence Township Business

If you are running a busy company, the pressures are not solely on you and your staff. The building itself is put under significant stress as well. That's why it is not uncommon for the physical structure to give out causing unforeseen damages. These can cause a loss of revenue, but the important thing is to keep calm and address the problem as quickly as possible using a local restoration service.

When we carry out commercial water removal in Lower Providence Township, we bring with us decades of experience and expertise. Having the know-how is only one part of the job. We have learned at SERVPRO that being able to communicate with the management is essential to getting a job done with the minimum amount of fuss.

A project manager can speak with you directly to keep you informed of work outcomes as well as to listen to any special requirements you may have. Having a two-way conversation has proven to be invaluable to our service as it allows us to factor in aspects that are unique to your business. 

In some cases, standing water may rise above levels of two inches. SERVPRO has access to fully submersible gas powered pumps, which can whisk away moisture into a sewer opening. That allows us to remove vast amounts in a short space of time and reduces the risk of permanent damages to floorboards or carpets caused by water saturation. 

Getting rid of water fast is easy. However, doing so without causing any further damage to the carpets, floorboards or furniture requires attention to detail and careful planning. We use truck-mounted extractors where there are significant amounts of standing water. For smaller buildings, we can bring in portable extractors with wands to precisely target different areas. 

We may take several runs over a specific area to ensure it dries properly. SERVPRO is also a mold remediation specialist. Over the years, we have seen many cases where water removal was not thorough enough, and patches of mold have built up in damp spots. We strive to make sure that does not happen to your business by bringing in moisture meters and dehumidifiers to check and dry the affected area. 

Standing water is a significant health and safety issue that could impact your revenue, contact SERVPRO of Norristown for an immediate assessment. Dial (610) 272-8520 now.

Commercial Flood Damage Experts In Norristown Discuss Safety During Restoration

Commercial Commercial Flood Damage Experts In Norristown Discuss Safety During Restoration Any time a severe thunderstorm makes its way to Norristown, flooding can occur.

Commercial Flood Damage Experts

Any time a severe thunderstorm makes its way to Norristown, flooding can occur. Thunderstorms bring about high-speed winds and excessive rains in short amounts of time. When water builds up outside, it can easily make its way into your office building, ruining items inside the structure. Tree branches and rocks can get taken by the fast winds and thrown into windows or exterior walls creating holes for rainwater to enter. When things get broken inside your place of business, it can make your workplace dangerous for you and your employees. When structural components get saturated, they often lose their structural integrity which can create safety hazards.

Any time a disaster strikes your office complex, various types of safety issues need to be addressed for all of the occupants to be 100% safe. As soon as we arrive at the scene of commercial flood damage in Norristown, we take measures to identify any potential safety hazards. We know that keeping your business functioning during the restoration process is vital. However, for your company to remain operating our SERVPRO experts must first make sure the building is safe for our workers and yours.

Several hazards could exist when a property is damaged by water. Personal hazards involve confined spaces, chemical safety, slip, trip and fall issues. Environmental hazards include hazardous materials, structural hazards, and electrical hazards. Biohazards on a job site can include infectious wastes and mold.

As soon as our SERVPRO restoration crew arrives at your office, we begin assessing the safety of the building. We ask you or an experienced employee about any known safety issues. We then begin a safety evaluation that is unique to each situation. We know that every structure is built differently and that every storm can cause various types of damage to structural components.

Before beginning any work, our SERVPRO technicians complete a safety evaluation. The evaluation consists of a safety checklist that includes a long list of potential hazards to investigate. The next time a storm floods out your office complex, call SERVPRO of Norristown at (610) 272-8520 24/7.

Avoid Losses With Commercial Fire Damage Restoration Services In East Norriton

6/25/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Avoid Losses With Commercial Fire Damage Restoration Services In East Norriton If you have experienced fire damage in your business, there is a need to put behind the devastating experience as soon as you can.

Commercial Fire Damage Restoration Services

If you have experienced fire damage in your business, there is a need to put behind the devastating experience as soon as you can. Apart from the apparent damage that the fire, soot and smoke causes, you still have to deal with water damage challenges that result from fire extinguishing efforts. If you don't take quick action, then your East Norriton business is likely to make losses.

When our SERVPRO technicians are cleaning your East Norriton property, inspecting the site and identifying the type of smoke residues is among the first steps. The inspection also helps us to identify the areas we are going to clean and then choose the most appropriate restoration methods to use. Then we capture and remove the residues - we do this with the help of fluids or air that suspend the particles.

Vacuuming is one of the ways we use when removing particles that are loosely attached to surfaces. For this process to be efficient, the target particles should be dry. After this process, we can introduce wet cleaning procedures such as dissolving. Our SERVPRO technicians use dissolving in instances where the soil particles are attached to the surface. The process loosens the bond, and it is easy to suspend the particles on a cleaning product. If we decide to use dissolving, we might first determine whether the particles are water-soluble; otherwise, we use solvent-based cleaning agents to do the job. After that, we wash, rinse and dry the surfaces. After capturing, we follow the state and local requirements to dispose of the residues.

Cleaning does not address the unpleasant odors that develop in the structure, and it is essential to perform deodorization to address such issues. Covering the smells with a fragrance is not advisable, so we use ULV Foggers or Thermal Foggers that dispense deodorant solutions which neutralize the odor-causing particles.

SERVPRO of Norristown has a proven record in water, fire, mold, and storm damage restoration. For help, call us at (610) 272-8520 and make your property “Like it never even happened.”

Commercial Professional Restoration To Flood Damages At Your Norristown Gym SERVPRO Extracts Water from Gyms--Making Local Norristown Athletes Stronger

Water Extraction Mitigates Damage to Commercial Properties

Norristown has seen its fair share of harsh winters over the last few years. While this might be par for the course regarding what business owners here could expect, you might not always remain completely aware of the damage that heavy snowfall could have done to the roof of your gym over this span of time.

When structural elements like your roof get compromised, the initial damage might be small and seemingly insignificant. As these vulnerable points allow water penetration in smaller amounts, the situation continues to worsen until entire portions of your roof support become too weak to continue holding back the pressure of the water trying to get in. Soon the building gets exposed to any rainfall that might be in the forecast, and your Norristown gym finds itself experiencing flood damages.
 
While you might have an excellent maintenance staff and custodial team, they cannot ever adequately prepare for the destructive and widespread nature of internal flooding. The best decision that you can make in a circumstance like this is to contact our experienced SERVPRO technicians to help you remove the water present in your facility, and work quickly to restore the damage before it has an opportunity to worsen.
 
In some cases, the severity of the damage to your roof might need to get repaired before our restoration efforts can begin, as any work that our SERVPRO team might do could get negated by another passing storm when the holes in the roof persist. Once a commercial contractor has remedied this issue, our professionals can quickly get to work on restoring the damage still present in the building to help you get the doors of your business back open to the fitness conscious members of the community you serve.
 
Flooding might happen in a variety of ways, but its destructive and damaging presence is universal to every business and home that it impacts. You can always trust SERVPRO of Norristown to help you overcome any issues you have in your building and restore the damage that a flood has left behind. Give us a call anytime at (610) 272-8520.

Commercial Water Damage Cleanup for Your Norristown Business

3/25/2018 (Permalink)

Commercial Commercial Water Damage Cleanup for Your Norristown Business If the pipes on your commercial water heater spring a leak or if the unit has another problem which causes water damage, contact SERVPRO right away.

SERVPRO Technicians Assess the Water Damage at Your Business to Properly Calculate Necessary Equipment for Efficient Remediation

When you frequently need to heat the water in your building in Norristown, you want systems which are dependable. Your business needs a water heater for normal operations, from heating to cleaning up to cooking, you cannot be without a working water heater. Plus, if this appliance should fail, you have a big mess on your hands to clean up.
 
Whether it is a slow leak or a burst, your water heater can create a great deal of commercial water damage to your Norristown business. You cannot afford much downtime, so leaving the cleanup job to professionals is essential. At SERVPRO, our trained staff is always standing by to help you out when your business is going through a water damage disaster.
 
After the standing water is extracted from your property, we need to calculate requirements for dehumidifiers so we can thoroughly dry the structure. We consider both the capacity of the dehumidifier and the nature of the environment.
 
One factor which defines the nature of the environment is how much absorbent or porous materials are present like unfinished wood, carpeting, and paper. The more absorbent materials present, the more moisture that is absorbed and has to evaporate when air movement is applied. Water damage that affects a lot of porous materials increases the need for more dehumidification for balancing evaporation.
 
SERVPRO staff also need to determine the class of water damage. Other factors, such as how much structural damage there is and whether water is trapped in the ceiling and wall cavities help us to determine this. To know how many dehumidifiers are needed for the initial setup, we figure out the class of water damage. We do this by looking at how many porous items are wet, instead of by the category, or cleanliness, of the water.
 
We also measure dehumidifier capacity by either the number of cubic feet of air the dehumidifier conditions per minute or by how many gallons of water removed in twenty-four hours under standard AHAM test conditions.
 
SERVPRO of Norristown works quickly but efficiently to dry your property in West Norriton, Trooper, or Bethel Hill back out. We understand that time is money, so when you call us at (610) 272-8520, we do not hesitate to help you get your business back in order.

Commercial Water Removal Helps Flooded Grocery and Food Stores in Norristown Reopen Again

12/7/2017 (Permalink)

Commercial Commercial Water Removal Helps Flooded Grocery and Food Stores in Norristown Reopen Again SERVPRO's IICRC certified technicians are ready to remediate any size water disaster quickly and efficiently.

SERVPRO’s Rapid Response Can Help Minimize Additional Damage

Food stores and deli shops have a high level of responsibility to provide safe and nutritious edible goods to the public in Norristown. Keeping your facility clean from top to bottom requires substantial input from your employee base. However, no matter how much work goes into keeping your store in sparkling condition, a barrage of water can ruin your employees' hard work.

Grocers and deli store owners in Norristown who use commercial water removal services after an emergency involving water recover substantially faster than similarly affected businesses that fail to engage professional services from a restoration company. Water emergencies escalate quickly, and a rapid response makes it easier to contain the problem and reduce the amount of damage experienced.

SERVPRO technicians' experience and skills keep them ready to remediate any size water disaster successfully. Removing the water that threatens your business starts with assessing the level of contamination. We rate water that came from outside your building as Category 3, the highest level possible, because of the amount of contamination from streets and parking lots, sewage, and other pollutants.

While Category 1 water does not create an intense sense of urgency for sanitation, Category 2 does, but not at the same level as Category 3. It is crucial to know that water can change categories when they absorb contaminants from your building's materials and contents. Water classified as Category 1 or 2 comes from inside your business, but if it sits long enough, that same water can change to a Category 3 flood, requiring additional work.

Our technicians, some certified by the IICRC as Commercial Drying Specialists (CDS), know that rapid removal of the water affecting your store can save you thousands of dollars and other unexpected difficulties. Complete dryness of your building is also crucial to protecting the building from future damage. Interior spaces of not only walls and ceilings, but also inside display racks and shelving units must attain dryness again. This protects against both microbial growth and physical deterioration of the materials.

We work as quickly as possible while keeping health and safety, as well as legal requirements in mind. Until we completely remove the water, followed by elimination of all threats to health and safety that the water introduced to your business's environment, the contamination in your store continues to pose a risk to the public.

SERVPRO of Norristown can be reached at (610) 272-8520, any hour of the day or night, year-round. Helping you eliminate the crisis through commercial water removal services and complete decontamination prepares your store to pass Health Department inspection so you can reopen your business.

Containing and Controlling the Damage are Key Tasks of the Remediation Process

When you operate a warehouse that stores goods for other businesses and industries, ensuring that the entire environment is suitable for that purpose can help keep you in business. Local businesses in Norristown sometimes store their excess goods and materials in warehouses to ensure that they remain available when needed but out of the way of daily operations at their factory.

If the environmental conditions surrounding a warehouse cause substantial commercial water damage in Norristown, the inventory inside can suffer damage and loss, too. Water damage can also stem from broken pipes, a leaking roof, a toilet that flooded the bathroom, and so many other possibilities. The crucial aspect is removing the water remaining to restore a level of normal humidity.

We understand that you owe your clients responsible protection of their goods. We can help you restore dryness to your building and the items inside, protecting them from any additional damage. To assist you with the insurance claims process, as a third party we can provide you with an inventory of damaged goods.

Removal of damaged goods might seem overwhelming, but afterward, you can more easily perform an accounting of the goods not destroyed. To keep damage from continuing, we rely on air blowers to circulate the air, heaters to increase the rate of evaporation, and dehumidifiers to extract airborne moisture. Surfaces receive similar attention simultaneously.
 
To prevent secondary water damage, we treat mold-prone surfaces with an antimicrobial agent. Metal surfaces are treated to prevent rust and corrosion. Affected carpeting can harbor microbes, or become damaged in other ways. Each setting requires an individualized assessment, which our Commercial Carpet Maintenance Technician (CCMT) skillfully performs. Our goals include performing the mitigation required so that your damages remain controlled and lower than expected.

SERVPRO of Norristown wants to help you provide the services our community's industries need. Call us at (610) 272-8520, at any hour of the day or night, as emergencies happen around the clock. We stand ready to help mitigate your warehouse's water damage situation.
